I am loving the cold days, but it appears many of you are ready for winter (or summer, which appears to be having heat waves in the USA,) to be over. What’s your favourite season?
Let’s kick off our Monday morning with a lovely pour over one of the members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory. It’s not hard to do when our Directory is packed with such amazing talent, when you see this week’s Vendor Of The Week? Well I know you’ll agree! But we have florists and photographers and stationers and people doing amazing things all over the country and the world, so Visit Ms Polka Dot’s Directory and see what you can find!
This week’s Vendor Of The Week is Little Flamingo Stationery + Events. Owned by Shannon Harcourt, Little Flamingo creates the most divine invitations for not only weddings, but baby showers, birthday parties and everything in between. Shannon’s creativity lends itself to conjuring up the most wonderful invitation for your event – from peacock feather invitations, to classic black and white silhouettes. Shannon works closely with her couples to design personal pieces or you can choose your design from one of the many in the Little Flamingo online store.
As an added bonus, Little Flamingo can also coordinate your wedding day – so they really do start from the first opening of the envelope to your final kiss goodbye!
To learn a little more about Little Flamingo Stationery + Events we asked Shannon five questions in five minutes!
What is your favourite after five drink?
I love to kick back and relax with a couple of friends and enjoy a good mojito MMMMmmm… it’s such a lovely sweet and sour combination!
Your favourite weekend getaway?
I don’t get away often so anywhere relaxing! I do love to fly up to the Gold Coast and surprise my cousin by turning up unannounced on her doorstep!
I have so many favourites, but my all time favourite is a gorgeous little place we stumbled on in Paris which serves the most amazing French-Vietnamese ever! Yummm! I just wish it wasn’t such a long way to travel!
What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
English Breakfast tea with banana and honey on toast. I am so addicted to this combo at the moment!
Your favourite wedding story?
This is a hard one! there are so many lovely stories of how couples got together, became engaged and the special touches they add to their wedding celebration. One bride we worked with had a song specially written for her fiance, she then had it played live at their reception by a close friend and his guitar while the newly married couple danced together, it was so beautiful!
